Tuner Gintani Motor Works has Created the First Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS and It Sounds Amazing
“I think we just birthed the new @Porsche widow-maker”by Robert Moore, on
We don’t have a lot to tell you or show you yet, but Gintani Motor Works has created one hell of a beast out of a Porsche 911 GT3 RS. The company does offer an ECU tuning kit GT3 and GT3 RS, but it’s limited to a 25-horsepower and 15 pound-feet increase in power output, but this is an entirely different animal. The tuning company has managed to do what nobody thought would ever be done – it’s created the world’s first twin-turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS! Right now, we only have a couple of short videos to go by, but based on the sound of the car alone, this thing is out of this world.
The World’s First Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Just listen to that. The caption: “I think we just birthed the new @Porsche widow-maker,” says it all, and I have to say that, based on this video alone, we definitely agree.
Here’s another teaser video of the same car sitting inside the garage where magic is apparently made:
What Can We Expect from Gintani’s Twin-Turbo Porsche 911 GT3 RS?
Right now, Porsche is kind of between GT3 models. With the new 992-gen 911 on the market, we’re still waiting for a whole onslaught of new cars, including the 992-gen 911 Turbo, 911 GT2, and, of course, the 911 GT3. The thing about the GT3, however, is that’s it always been naturally aspirated, and that’s part of the reason why enthusiasts love it so much. Much like the Ferrari 812 Superfast and Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the GT3 RS lives to prove that natural aspiration is better than forced induction. After seeing the videos above, however, we’re starting to disagree.
The 992-gen 911 GT3 RS is expected to deliver around 525 horsepower, about five ponies more than the 911-gen model. It’s also expected to adopt the 4.0-liter mill from the 911 GT3 R, but that has yet to be confirmed. Either way, slapping a pair of twin turbos into the mix along with extra fuel and a potent ECU tune could push the GT3 RS well into supercar territory, not that it was far from there to begin with. The current GT3 RS sprints to 60 mph in three seconds flat and runs the quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds. It can also hit 193 mph. Will Gintani’s twin-turbo GT3 RS break make it to 60 mph in the low-2-second range? Can it break into 9-second quarter-mile territory? It certainly sounds like it, but we’ll have to wait until we receive more information.
Gintani, if you’re reading this, we’d love to hear from you and learn more about your new Porsche widow-maker!
